Born in Villar del Arzobispo, Valencian Community, Verdés was a product of Valencia CF's youth system. After unsuccessfully appearing for them as a senior (never made it past the reserves in three full seasons), he served a loan with Xerez CD in the second division, appearing in exactly half of the matches as the Andalusians finished in 15th position; in summer 2008, he was released by his parent club.
For the 2008–09 campaign, Verdés moved to the third level, playing under young manager Luis Enrique at FC Barcelona B. However, after only one year, he returned to Valencia, spending an additional season with the reserve side – also in division three – which ended in relegation.
Verdés signed for Elche CF, also in his native region and the second tier, in July 2010. After three seasons of irregular playing time, featuring in 24 games in the first one and just 21 in the following two combined, mainly due to injuries, he moved to fellow league team AD Alcorcón.
